We continue our Open House series in 2016 with Solafrica, a Swiss NGO active in Africa, training local professionals and developing small-scale businesses on solar technology. Their goal? Assist rural areas in Africa to meet their growing energy demands, in a self-sufficient way and with lower carbon emissions. What are their results so far, after 6 years of activity in 3 different countries?
Join us for a very promising evening discussion and informal ápero on promoting access to energy, entrepreneurship and development.
The Open House events are a meeting point for professionals and people with an interest in the fields of Sustainability, NGOs and Philanthropy. On each session, visitors can enjoy a short presentation by an organisation selected by SUSTINOVA and, during an informal Apéro, the opportunity to connect and discuss face-to-face the work of the organisation and other overarching issues.
